I’m learning to let the little things inspire me. Dinner with friends, divine connections, fresh air, good coffee.
I had dinner with Joe Bunting of The Write Practice last night. He’s a talented guy and I got the chance to spend some time with him, relax, and pick his brain. Even though it was a casual conversation where we talked about everything from blogging, making a living freelancing, families, faith, and pizza… it inspired me.
I was amazed how Joe can sit down and write original, thoughtful posts almost every day. For me, it seems like pulling teeth, and my ideas for blog posts come slowly. But as I sat there, I began to realize: Not all of my inspiration needs to come in grand epiphanies. It can be a little epiphany.
Try It Out.
I’m going to take some time this week and I invite you to join me. Take a short walk, sit on your porch, watch the squirrels chase each other, or listen to the sounds of kids playing. Allow it to inspire you.
It doesn’t have to be life changing. It should just cause you or someone else to stop for a second and wonder. Dream.
And then share it with someone. Share it with us here if you’d like.
That’s what I did.
